Willpower Doesn't Work

Benjamin Hardy

Overview

Do you remember the last goal you accomplished and how good it felt? Perhaps you were proud of shedding some weight. Or it could have been simply waking up early to exercise. Maybe you're happy about pushing hard to finish a big project.

Whatever it was you accomplished, it likely involved a lot of willpower. This ability we have to force ourselves to do things that we think we don't want to do is highly prized in the productivity world.

But the reality is, getting enough self-discipline to get stuff done is tough. What if there was a way you could become ultra-productive and reach your dreams without having to just push through in misery?

The good news for all of us is that there is a way, and Benjamin Hardy is here to teach it to us in his book Willpower Doesn't Work: Discover the Hidden Keys to Success. Are you pumped up to learn why Willpower Doesn't Work and what to do instead? Let's go!

"Success isn't that difficult; it merely involves taking twenty steps in a singular direction. Most people take one step in twenty directions."
